We will see what happens....thanks for the feedback though. As we are all aware buying shoes from the internet can be a bit of a mug's game risk taking adventure. But I went with the best advice available and a good returns policy.

Running shoes are something it is definitely best to try on ,and perhaps even get properly fitted for if you are at all worried that you have slightly abnormal feet. I wouldn't even think of buying online without some educated in-person advice.

You can do some pretty bad damage by wearing the wrong shoes, damage that will stop you from running for an extended period of time.

Pretty much all the brands offer a "minimalist" running shoe in trendy neon colourways now (e.g. Free Run series).

Having switched from typically cushioned Brooks shoes to Free Runs, there was definitely an adjustment period of a month or two during which my shins would hurt a bit - I believe this is partly due to the lack of cushioning, and also partly due to the fact that they encourage you to run flat footed, rather than striking heel first.

I haven't run more than 15ks in them, but I have heard anecdotally that they shouldn't be worn for very long runs if at all possible due to the lack of cushioning (or, at least, you should not make a habit of it).

For me Nikes are great for basketball and running because they are quite narrow.

Trying to casual down my weekend/off duty look which is either training gear or shirt, jeans/chinos, chukka or loafers and sometimes a blazer (which is good, but I am 29 and feel, or am, a bit overdressed in some situations). Seeking the casual/smart off duty mythical middle ground... eg not flipflops and a singlet but not looking out of place, "dressed like an old man" or uncomfortable (have really struggled in the heat this summer).

I like those, but can't quite affor them. I'm waiting for Kent Wang to release his near-identical shoe in my size, at which point my current white tennis shoes probably will have died.

The 'oversize' look would work excellently in the more casual setting I'm envisioning for it. I'm not going to impulse buy as it'd take a few months to get to Aus anyway (ships end of May or something) so in the mean-time I'm going to see if I can try on some similar sized dive watches (with hefty lugs like the prodiver) and figure out if I like the feel of 'em on my wrist or whether I should just say 'feck it' and save up for the titanium Tudor Pelagos (which also catches my fancy).

I wondering if what the Prince of Paisley means is the watch is to thick and not the width being a problem is what he means by to bulky ??

It looks as though you can upload more than one shot to the Mr Porter site, as I noticed that Christian Kimber has a couple of shots.

I have no idea about the uploading process, though - do you do it yourself, or is it selected by someone else, or by crowd acclamation?

I stumbled upon this article from the New York Times magazine the other day, and thought it worth posting a link here:

The Circus of Fashion

It's about the rise of the fashion blogger and how more and more people are "peacocking" around outside fashion shows, particularly during the big fashion weeks.

Whilst the article is primarily about women, it really reminded me of the ridiculous outfits that we see people wearing during Pitti Uomo - in essence, they are deliberately donning costumes so as to attract attention and (hopefully) be photographed. Unfortunately, however, there are people out there who see those photos posted and reposted on Tumblr and who then adopt those looks for themselves.

Apparently, the article has created a bit of a stir online, with some people supporting the views put forward in the article (there are too many ridiculously-dressed fops swanning around etc etc) and others panning the article (the democratisation of fashion, rise of street style, etc etc).

I entered three and one got picked. What you need to do is to tag your instagram photos with #MRPORTERGS and #CANBERRA or #BRISBANE or whatever city you're from. I just went back to some of my old photos on Instagram and added the tags in a comment.

It's not an automatic load - somebody actually selects them. I entered three and one got picked.

 

This dude (from Melbourne) has 224 votes so far:

 

Even the guy in the Oh My Goth t-shirt has 26 votes biggrin.gif

One got picked up in about 20 minutes or so. I reckon it's also the time difference, Rob. It's probably someone over in the UK who's doing it so expect to see yours up later today - don't fret.
